These are 3 of Darrell's better beads and his taflmaðr. The two tone beads are produced by making the bead using 2 tesserae of different colours. There are no viking era equivalents that I am aware of but since the goal is to learn to make beads from the tesserae the detail of accurate colours is a minor issue.
